What is a Super Moon?
A Supermoon occurs when the centre of the moon is less than 360,000 kilometers from the centre of the earth. This causes the moon to look about 7% larger and 16% brighter than the average Full Moon.
As photographers, we are naturally curious about all the wonders of the world. So, when there’s a phenomenon like a Super Full Moon, we pack our gear and seize the ‘moon’ment.
A few tips a tricks for photographing the Super Full Moon:
- You will need a long lens. Anything longer than a 400mm lens will work

- ISO: 100-200
- Aperture: F/5.6 to F/10
